Wonderfully fresh and smoked fish, both local and ocean. You can pick out fish and they will fry it up into a sandwich. No fishy smell in the place which attests to the freshness. Ma and Pa store, have been in the business several decades.

I have been coming here for over 35 years. The food is great. Especially the fried shrimp and fish chips. They are fast but can get very crowded especially during Lent.

Excellent fried fish for lunch! Not too greasy. It also has nice shrimp platters for holiday (it gets busy) and wonderful frozen stuff if you want to try something new - mussels, stuffed crab

Has a vast assortment of fried, smoked, broiled fish. Been going here for 30 years, and never gotten a bad order. Great breading on fried food, seafood salad is awesome, food is a little pricy, but so worth it.

Really surprised how much I enjoyed this restaurant It is a fish market where they fry the fresh fish for you. May be the best po boy sandwich I ever had. No seating but a really great option for take out.
